MPP Supports Treaty Three Police

Kenora-Rainy River MPP Sarah Campbell is pleased the Treaty Three Police Service is fighting to stay open. Campbell says First Nations policing is a must-have in Northwestern Ontario. Campbell says she's hopeful the Provincial and Federal Government understand the importance of the police service, and will provide appropriate funding going forward.

OPP Long Weekend Blitz

OPP are again reminding the public that they will be out in full force this long weekend looking for naughty drivers. This year's traffic enforcement blitz will focus on dangerous driving behaviours such as failing to move over for emergency vehicles. Sergeant Shelley Garr says they'll be out this long weekend making sure motorists obey the "Move Over Law". Garr says violating this law could cost you anywhere from 400 to 1200 dollars, and three demerit points upon conviction.
